In addition to consultations, using minimally invasive procedures, our interventional cardiologists provide advanced treatment for painful, restless and swollen legs related to venous disease and varicose veins, including:

  • Chemical Ablations
  • Cosmetic treatment of varicose veins

Cosmetic vein services

Our interventional cardiologists also provide two different types of advanced therapy for the cosmetic treatment of varicose veins. Non-thermal ablation vein therapy is an injectable foam medicine used to treat varicose veins. Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) treatment heats, collapses and seals off blood vessels to stop the progression of venous disease and clear up unsightly veins in the legs.
